[♪...] >>trace: this is "studio b." the white house says president obama spoke with israeli prime minister binyamin netanyahu and reiterated his commitment to the security of the jewish nation. we are told that president obama also praised his egyptian counterpart, president morsi to persuade militants leaders to grow to a cease-fire. it has been a critical test for the new islamist leader that balanced his relationship with hamas with long standing ties to the united states. it remains to be seen whether the truce will last. and now to the white house, ed, with regard to israel, president obama and prime minister binyamin netanyahu appe working very closely together. >>reporter: they have had tense relations before but the president needs to rely on the prime minister now. he is add the center of the situation, the last thing that president obama wants to do weeks before his second term begins is to have a full scale war going on in the middle east that evershadows the start of that second term. this is a full-scale national security crisis, not just for
democrat if necessary, but not for governor. look for the obama white house to keep its distance from next year's governor's race. before sandy new jersey democrats talked of a re-elected obama returning to the state in 2013 to promote their gubernatorial candidate. now the white house is grateful to christie. since obama won't be running again in 2016 it's not likely they feel threatened by his ambition. obama won't be saving new jersey democrats next year either.
obama won ohio and another term in the white house, now in ohio that same republican secretary of state says that ohio should change the rules to divide up the state's electoral votes by congressional district. that would mean that ohio wouldn't be winner take all anymore. so a republican candidate could get electoral votes out of ohio. >> it would not be a winner-take-all state and you would not have another elections controversy about ohio because we wouldn't matter as much anymore. >> ohio leading the way forward by trying to not matter as much anymore. then, hey, who cares whether your citizens can vote in a reasonable amount of time if your state doesn't matter as much anymore. let them stand in line all day. republicans in another state won by barack obama this year want to change the rules in that state too. before the election this year, wisconsin republicans tried to require photo i.d. in order to vote. they failed at that. then president obama won wisconsin and another term in the white house. now the republican governor of wisconsin scott walker wants to try to change the rul
gerrymandered house districts to determine where the vote goes. so obama would have carried the state and romney would have gotten 12 of 18 electoral votes. that doesn't make any sense. governor walker said he was concerned that this was unfair to poll workers that they had to register voters. now since these are, as far as i can tell, the only public employees for whom he's expressed sympathy, that can't be the reason they are doing this. and i just think that -- i hope this is a passing thing and that there are other forces in the republican party saying, no, we need a more fundamental rethink. they only need to shift about four votes in a hundred. you'd think they would have the confidence to win a fair election by converting just four people out of every 100 people. >> we have seen a new normal or maybe a new attempt at a center in republican politics on a bunch of different issues since this election. comprehensive immigration reform is something they are willing to talk about. some of the issues like talking about rape exceptions in abortion, it seems to be something that they are willing
. >> jon: damn you, obama! that's coming frommed in your own house. and even the right's beloved super pac designed to do to obama what obama did to romney backfired. remember aidle son, las vegas billionaire? said he's give up to $100 million to help romney defeat the socialist obama? why did he have to give so much money? because he gave so much to gingrich in the primaries to defeat vulture capitalist romney, the half-hour bain attack ad was produced and distributed by romney sugar daddy sheldon aidle son. it wasn't murder. it was auto erotica asphyxiation. the highlight of fox's total melted down for me-- and there were a lot of highlights. i'm a bit of a connoisseur-- was to see where they ultimately landed. the place they could go to in their own minds to rationalize the utter destruction of bull ( bleep ) mountain. >> it was almost four years of division and class warfare. we need to hope and pray that the president understands now that, that policy is divisive, and that policy is destructive to the future of the united states. >> let's hope a lesson has been learned, and he surpris
